Taking inspiration from Huawei Mate P20 Pro, Apple’s next-generation flagship phone ‘iPhone XI’ is expected to come with a triple camera system at the rear, according to media reports. It's still unclear what features these three cameras would bring. Apple currently uses one dual camera array on iPhone XS and XS Max – one wide-angle camera and one 2x optical zoom snapper.
Apple is planning to launch three iPhones in September 2019 – the low-end variant of iPhone XR and two high-end variants, successors to iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max. According to a popular leaker OnLeaks, the 2019 iPhones are still in Engineering Validation Test (EVT) stage, and there could be changes in the details when the phones will eventually launch in September 2019. So that means the current triple camera design may not be the final design and changes are still possible.
Owing to underwhelming iPhone sales, especially in China, Apple has also lowered its revenue guidance for its 2019 fiscal quarter, which ended on December 29. In an open letter to its investors, Apple CEO Tim Cook now expects revenue of approximately $84 billion, gross margin of approximately 38 per cent and operating expenses of approximately $8.7 billion.
The installed base of active Apple devices hit a new all-time high – growing by more than 100 million units in 12 months. There are more Apple devices being used than ever before, and it’s a testament to the ongoing loyalty, satisfaction and engagement of customers.
